Thanks, tried that and used different email account to sign up but still no joy. Even deleted and reinstalled BBC iPlayer on Firestick but got a message when I opened the reinstalled app to the effect that BBC retain certain data on their servers so perhaps they had retained some details on Firestick??

Managed to get this working on a 4K firestick, after a bit of too and fro with support.

Download this APK to an android device, then send the saved file to the firestick using this app, easy fire tools.

Once installed its easy to toggle between UK and USA for BBC iPlayer and Netflix.

Ah Christ, it's much easier than that. Google firestick and unlimitedvpn and it gives you instructions to install directly onto firestick. Very easy.

Yes, followed to the letter, was getting " package appears to be corrupt" when i tried to install it.

I have seen a few other people with similar issues so said i would post what worked for me in case its needed in future.

This is where I got the APK from. Which Fire Stick are you using? New-ish?

At present yes, but went down for some time, maybe BBC realized the same IP address had multiple users and VPN unlimited changed it since.

The SmartDNS product from KeepSolid was working perfectly on my Samsung SmartTV for the first few days (i.e. US Netflix OK & no restrictions on Amazon Prime). Recently however Netflix has noticed I'm running a proxy and demands removal.

I asked their tech support and they recommend installing the VPN on the TV. I can't find the appropriate .apk to install so they then recommended using the SmartDNS product on the modem. I haven't tried this yet but plan to soon.

If anyone finds a solution to installing this VPN on a SamsungTV, please post.
